West Ham will be looking to pull off a rare season double over Manchester United when they travel to Old Trafford this Wednesday night.
The Hammers picked up a 2-0 victory over the Red Devils at the London Stadium earlier in the season. David Moyes and his men will now be looking to pull off their first season double over United since the 2006/07 season.
The bookmakers aren’t confident of West Ham’s chances in this game and they’ve priced the Hammers at a huge price of 10/1. United, meanwhile, are the clear favourites at 2/9.
This past weekend wasn’t a great one for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men as they lost 3-1 to Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-final. The defeat ended United’s 19-match unbeaten run across all competitions.
West Ham, on the other hand, enjoyed a far better weekend as they claimed a comfortable 3-1 victory over relegation rivals Watford. The victory pushed the Hammers up the table and saw the Hornets boss Nigel Pearson lose his job as a result.
Looking ahead to this game, the overs market is certainly worth a look. The over 3.5 goals bet is currently priced at 6/5 which is a price that does reflect the high scoring nature of both teams but still offers some value.
United have scored 16 goals from their last six games. The Hammers, on the other hand, have netted 12 goals from their last five Premier League fixtures. Seven of those goals have come in their last two games and five of them were scored by Michail Antonio alone.
Bearing everything in mind, there are a number of bets to consider. Firstly, both teams to score is definitely one to think about at the current price of 19/20. As mentioned before, the overs market should also be explored if it offers the right price. Antonio to score anytime at 15/4 is another one.
Nevertheless, our recommendation is to go with a price play and back West Ham to win outright at the price of 10/1.
The Hammers are in good form and they’re taking on a United side who played poorly in their FA Cup semi-final. Plus, the current price is simply too good to ignore.
